Correct Cable For 13 Pin Plug

Hi,

Having just changed my car to one which has a 13 pin socket I want to rewire the caravan to use a 13 pin plug and a single cable. I know there are other ways - adaptor or 13 pin plug wired to both existing cables but a new single cable seems the neatest and most effective arrangement.

There appear to different specs for the cable - most seem to have 7x 0. 65mm cores 1x 1. 5mm and 4x2. 5mm but it is also possible to get cable with 8x1. 5mm and 5x2. 5mm. Which is correct?

The caravan is 2002 if that makes any difference.

Thanks.

The latter is the current ISO standard

The correct cable is available from Sargeants (amongst others)

Or you can use a 13 pin plug with twin entry to connect the two wires into one 13 pin plug which will save buying cable and joining .

I think you will find he has already said he doesn't want to do that.

Thanks for the replies.

My preference is to replace the existing cables with the one 12/13 core but the option of using a 13 pin plug which will accept the 2 existing cables does look easier and I may yet decide to go that way!
